I visit 1 -2 times per month. I can't stay away from the twice cooked tofu! Addictive. The staff is friendly and parking is tight, but if you are in the area; treat yourself.

I am THE loyal customer. I have followed the owner since she owned Little Sichuan in San Mateo. Then she moved to Millbrae and opened up Classic Sichuan. Then she moved again and now is at Fey in West Menlo Park. The lady knows how to run a business and she maintains high quality Sichuan spicy food. In the times... More

It was a good sign that I was the only non Chinese patron at the family style restaurant. The menu was extensive, the food good and the service pretty decent. It's not fancy and it should be noted that the decor does not add to the experience.

I like getting take-out from this spot near Palo Alto. It seems quite authentic to me in the atmosphere and many of the dishes. Last time I got some pot stickers that I did not like at all. Not crispy and the sauce was insipid. I got Szechuan Shrimp, which was just okay but not great. I think there are... More

The restaurant seemed dated. Service was poor, very unfriendly. I also thought food quality was poor, in my opinion. I had sweet and sour chicken it was mostly batter and the chicken was dry, seemed old.

Go for the food, not the ambiance. This joint needs a makeover. The chairs were old and worn. The lighting looked as if it had been bought, at a discount, from a bankrupt disco. There were fake, somewhat dusty plants everywhere and the list goes on. The only reason I ventured inside was the multitude of Yelp review stickers on... More

We ate at Fey's while staying at the Residence Inn right around the corner. We got chicken sichuan and fried rice, which was delicious, and the meal came with a free pot of hot tea and a free dish of fried Chinese noodles. There was a LOT of food. My husband and I shared the chicken and rice, and we... More

We ordered a Tofu Fish and pointed at the picture on the menu and he brought a fish without Tofu and never apologized. we ordered two ice water, he brought one glass ice water and another waiter brought a dirty glass on the table and left. When we were nobody came to table and we had to ask for boxes.

Fey Restaurant is the heart and gem of it's owners, James and Han Ying. Fey, an acronym of it's well known Chinese name Fu En Yuan, has existed for more than 20 years in the Bay Area. Their reputation for purely authentic and taste bud popping Sichuan and Northern Chinese food is impeccable and a definite must try. Come in for your favorite luncheon special or even have a party in our beautiful and elegant VIP room (advanced bookings please!). We will also be bringing you a new specialty, Chinese Hotpot (Fey style of course!). Instead of sharing a large boiling pot with people around you, you will have the luxury of your own. Come on in and experience Chinese food with style. You won't regret it.
